Application

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

Interview

The introductory interview was with a representative at the career fair. This was followed by a phone interview, and then an in person interview at the school. Unfortunately, I did not get past this step of the process, but I knew a few people who did. They told me that they had another interview that consisted of a multi-day on-site interview. This included scenarios that required presentations to management.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online in May and was called by a recruiter confirming interest and supervisor details (I am a former co-op). This was followed by two 1:1 phone interviews (I was remote at the time) consisting of behavioral questions. I did not hear back until almost 5 months later, when I was extended an invite to the invitational (final round 2-day event). Day 1 is meet and greet and networking. Day 2 consisted of guest speakers and three different 1:1 interviews, which included: One behavioral interview; One business case interview; One ethics case interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Which aspect of the credo is most difficult to uphold?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Did not attempt to negotiate. J&J is very structured with their offers, and I was satisfied with the compensation.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2013.

    Interview

    Very friendly environment. Interviewers help keep the conversation fluid and open. Other than asking about interest in J&J, all behavioral questions such as greatest strength, most difficult problem solved, learning from mistakes, working with different types of people, etc.

    The interview was an hour and a bit tiring only because the questions are open ended but require a lot of details. Interviewers were both very nice.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson (New Brunswick, NJ) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Was interviewed one on one by a HR representative and was asked 5 behavioral questions, each covering a different category. There were some stops and starts due to all of my responses needing to be written down in a booklet, but overall it was a smooth process and the interviewer kept it informal and comfortable.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Newark, NJ) in October 2010.

    Interview

    -Phone interview all behavioral questions
    -2 day interview process - First night dinner, learn about company and their Credo (very important to utilize later in the interview process). Next day: one behavioral, two case studies - one business and one ethics interview. It is important to remember that people and customers come first at J&J, then business. Their people reflect that service mindset, which makes it a great company.

    Application

    The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Davis, CA) in October 2008.

    Interview

    I had an on-campus interview initially - about an hour long, all behavioral questions. After this, I was invited to fly to NJ for a weekend with all the other candidates from from around the country. Once there, we had one day of networking and learning about the company "credo." Then, day two consisted of 3 1:1 interviews - 2 case studies, 1 behavioral. They were challenging but the interviewers would help you along a little with the case studies. It was a pretty laid back atmosphere, all things considered. I ended up not getting an offer, mostly because I had no engineering or operations background, they said. I was entered into their system though, and they ended up calling me a few months later with a job offer for a different position.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2011.

    Interview

    Applied through college website and got an email for an interview. Interview was 1:1 for about an hour. Unfortunately, the interviewer began by stating the fact he was tired and throughout the interview showed general disinterest and frequently got off-track. Questions were very basic and followed the STAR method. The week after I received a call stating, without surprise, that I had not advanced to the next round.
